busy busy busy

Okay, so I finally have a free night!! Yay! But not really free because I have a lot to catch up on. It's been a busy three weeks. After John's birthday party was Dragoncon. I haven't written anything about Dragoncon yet or organized my pictures - which is bad because I have to give a friend a copy of the pictures at dinner Monday so that's what I should be working on. The week prior to Dragoncon was registration, graduation, and getting ready for the trip. The weekend after Dragoncon we hosted the Brobdingnagian Bards so we had Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to get ready (in case they came early - we wanted everything done for Saturday). Plus, our dear friends sarahtoalaska and kwix were visiting from Alaska so we wanted to have the gang over on Saturday and any other possible day. We did major work before the convention - cleaning out the garage, setting up the arcade, mowing the JUNGLE that took over our yard, clearing out the Apple room to make it a bedroom again (it was frightful), putting up shelves in the Alice room and garage, as well as general cleaning, scrubbing, washing, sweeping, and our laundry. My mom was stunned when she saw the place. So Saturday we had friends up, Sunday the Bards rocked the house (more about that), Monday we had our bookreading, Tuesday we had movie night, Wednesday I had mandolin lesson, Thursday I had a dentist appointment/oil change/major errands/new cell phone/straighten the house for company, Friday my friends in Mississippi came to visit (actually to see their high school football team play our local high school team - it was homecoming and really quite fun!), Saturday we ran around - oddly enough we bumped into disbandedtoastr and reddheaded at TJMaxx. And seconds later droidgirl and her mom & sister arrived. somehow we all converged at the same store unplanned, that was funny. So in a babbly rambly way that catches me up to today. I'm tired and ready to sleep but I still need to write about the Bards and Dragoncon and stuff. But I'm sleepy and need to get the house back in order again (it's not too bad, we've been been trying to maintain since the bards) because hopefully my mandolin teacher, disbandedtoastr, and whoever else Jimmy wants us to play with will be showing up at our house for a rehearsal or something. Guess I'm off to vacuum. Monty Python is actually on tv right now - how cool is that?

Sarah & Kwix - we love you, it was so nice to see you. i could almost forget you aren't still here, it felt so much like old times. hope your flight was peaceful and free of snakes.
herzograven, glad you are still with us.

Tell me about it. right after Dragon Con, I had to return to work. then being at work really sucked because I was scheduled with idiots for the four days right after dragon con.

I had to clean up the house since Kent/Sarah were going to stay with us for about four days, of which I did the worst job ever. The whole house was a mess, the dishes weren’t washed and everything was unorganized, I’m a BAD host.

Dragon Con: I have SO much written up on Dragon Con that I want to post, but haven’t had the time yet to post it in it’s complete form. My goodness it’s been busy.

Today I spent all day sorting though stuff that had taken over the house. Boxes with the Apple logo all over the house (that’s totally freemonkey’s fault, had he not shown me the Apple refurbished page on their website, I wouldn’t have gone crazy with buying things from their website like this, hehe).

Tuesday night I was held at gun point, and I found out that my car key broke. What else could’ve gone wrong that day, hehe.

But yes, it’s been crazy busy and super hectic, BUT all in all, this year’s been good to me so far, I don't want to jinx that.

Also, good to be alive, hehe.

Oh WHATEVER... get over it... you were so not a bad host. Geeze. The house was not in that bad a shape, really it wasn't. Heck I've seen it worse. I was around for Christmas. Get over it!

I know, it was so nice to be around everyone again... but made it hard to leave again.
I am so jealous! I have never even seen Droidgirls sister. Dang it. She's the last one I haven't met.
